Just came across the funniest mention of us in a Devics review online.
Slow, teary-eyed gothic jazz was an inevitability as darkwave, dream pop, and shoegazing became further and further intertwined. Lovespirals’ “Windblown Kiss” of 2002 was heralded as the style’s official birth and fulfilled the lifelong dreams of darkwave and lounge lovers like myself by blending the melancholy, ethereal vocals of the former with the breezy, slow sway of the latter.
Even though I have heard one or two other people make similar mention, I can’t get used to the idea that anyone would still think we’re Gothic, in addition to Jazz. It’s just too crazy! Why not “Dark Jazz” at least? LOL.
Ha Ha! First Ryan invents “Gothic Trip Hop” (Flux) and now “Gothic Jazz” (Windblown Kiss). I suppose next we’ll be “Gothic Soul”? No… People can’t possibly try to lump our new music in with Gothic. Can they?
